Out of the 1,354 DDA flats that were launched in the DDA Housing Scheme 2021, in January this year, around 689 flats have been surrendered, with a majority being from the MIG category, followed by the EWS category.
According to an Indian Express report, out of the 689 flats, the MIG category in Dwarka 19B has seen the maximum surrender of flats- 295 out of 352. The 11-floor MIG flats here have vacant spaces that double up for parking, as well as shops. The project also has an underground parking lot. Spread across 125 sq m, the sample flat has two rooms, a hall, a bathroom and a kitchen. Each block also has three lifts. Jasola Pocket 9 B, offering HIG category flats, saw a surrender of close to 175 DDA flats out of 215 flats. The cost of Jasola Pocket 9B 14-floor HIG flats range between Rs 1.97 crores and Rs 2.14 crores. In the draw, this property was highlighted as one of the sought-after projects, offering 3 BHK apartments measuring 170 sq m and having facilities including multi-level parking and three-tier, in-house water management model. The project also enjoys excellent connectivity, with the Okhla barrage being three kms away and Noida and Faridabad being just half-an-hour away.
The DDA has planned to introduce a ‘first come first served’ policy. In those sectors where close to 50% of flats that were either rejected, not allotted in previous schemes or surrendered, will be sold. This is subject to approval from the Ministry of Housing and Urban, for which a proposal has already been sent. This is particularly beneficial to all, because the DDA will have to spend on maintaining the surrendered flats, which is a difficult task and failure to do so, may create a bad impression. According to the rules, once the draw of lots is over, the DDA planned to conduct a mini-draw in which only 20% of the waitlisted applicants can participate. According to DDA commissioner (housing) VS Yadav, “If the policy is approved, most of these surrendered flats – 175 out of 215 HIG flats in Jasola and 295 out of 352 MIG flats in Dwarka Sector 19 – would be on offer on a ‘first come first served’ basis. All other rules that are applicable when a person buys a flat under the draw of lots to be eligible, would be followed.”
Further, the DDA is conducted the draw of lots on April 18, 2022, for its special housing scheme launched in 2021. The scheme offers 18,335 flats, mostly those returned by allottees in previous housing schemes. The draw of lots was conducted in the presence of judges and senior DDA officials and it was telecast live. Applicants can click on this https://dda.golivecast.in/ to view the telecast.
The draw of lots for the Special Housing Scheme 2021 witnessed less than one-third of takers, and only 5,227 flats were allotted. DDA said it had placed 18,335 flats across 28 localities under the housing scheme. However, the authority put 9,790 flats in the final draw, considering it received only 12,387 applicants who deposited the registration fee. It also said that most applicants preferred localities such as Vasant Kunj, Jasola and Dwarka, while the preferences for the Narela sub-city were not as per expectations. As per a senior official, connectivity issues may be one of the reasons that not many people came forward. Besides, DDA flats were losing out to private developers that provide houses at lower rates in NCR, according to sources in the DDA. The authority also plans to sell 13,000 flats on ‘first come, first served’ basis.

DDA Housing Scheme 2021 launch date and details
The much-awaited lottery draw of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) Housing Scheme 2021, was held on March 10, 2021. The Authority received around 30,000 applications for its ‘Housing Scheme 2021’, a DDA official said, on February 16, 2021. Announced on January 2, 2021, the scheme offers luxury flats and penthouses in Delhi in 14-storey buildings, with terrace gardens and best-in-class finishing. The lottery draw was held for 1,354 DDA flats in Delhi’s Sector 19B, Dwarka, Manglapuri and Jasola, most of them in the MIG category. Applicants can watch the streaming on the DDA portal.
Vasant Kunj has DDA flats ranging between Rs 1.43 crores and Rs 1.72 crores. The LIG flats in Dwarka, Rohini and Narela range between Rs 17 lakhs and Rs 35 lakhs. Finally, the Janta flats in Manglapuri and Narela range between Rs 8 lakhs and Rs 30 lakhs.
The DDA Housing Scheme 2021 garnered a lot of interest from home buyers. Of the 30,000 applications, over 21,000 applicants have paid the registration amount. Around 6,000 paid applications were received for the HIG and MIG units. The most sought-after areas were Dwarka and Vasant Kunj, where most of the high-end units are located. For just 13 flats in Vasant Kunj, over 2,000 applications have been received. The 215 HIG flats at Jasola’s Pocket 9B were the costliest ever for a DDA housing scheme, with a price tag of Rs 1.9-2.1 crores. These received 1,677 applications.
Additionally, owing to the second wave of the Coronavirus pandemic, the DDA has also extended the last date for making interest-free payment of cost of flats, for allottees of ‘2021 Housing Scheme’, to August 31, 2021, from June 29, 2021.
The DDA conducted a draw on August 25, 2021 at 3 pm, for allotment of these surrendered DDA flats in Delhi to the waitlisted applicants. Based on random number generation, the draw for allotment of flats was held in the presence of independent observers – a retired judge and a senior officer of the government of India. The general public could view the live telecast of the draw online.
130 waitlisted applicants had applied for the draw that offered 689 flats. The scheme saw only 79 allottees taking advantage. The remaining of the stock- 610 flats will be added with the inventory of a new scheme that the DDA plans to launch in December 2021. Media reports suggest that there are enquiries from government bodies including CISF for bulk buying of the remaining inventory for its employees.
According to reports, this surrender of almost half of the flats by applicants is because of constraints pertaining to civic facilities, accessibility from the main city, last-mile connectivity and transportation, safety issues and the mayhem caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.

DDA flats in Delhi: How does DDA’s draw of lots work?
DDA draw of lots is a procedure conducted by DDA for allocating the flats under its various housing schemes using a computerised random number technique in three stages:
- Randomisation of applicants and flats
- Picking up of lucky numbers
- Mapping of applicants and flats
If you are wondering how the DDA’s draw of lots works, you should know that the entire process is completely computerised and automated. Therefore, applicants should stay wary of crooks who might promise you assured homes in the lottery draw.

The applicant would need to submit his original allotment letter, cancelled cheque and original acknowledgement slip, along with other documents if he/she wants to cancel the DDA allotment.

DDA housing scheme 2022

The development authority will provide homes to the poor people at the cost of just Rs 7 lakhs under the PM Awas Yojana, along with the basic facilities.
DDA fake call centre advisory
The DDA, on September 10, 2019, cautioned that a ‘fake call centre’ was being operated in the name of the urban body, which was allegedly reaching out to unsuccessful and wait-listed applicants of the Housing Scheme 2019 for the allotment of flats. A senior DDA official said, police action was being initiated in the case.
“It is notified for the information of the general public that no such call centre number has been provided by the DDA and the details of the bank and IFSC Code are also false and fraudulent,” the DDA said in a statement. The telephone number of the ‘so-called call centre has been quoted as 18002122593’, it said. “Further, some fraudulent and fictitious link and bank details in the name of DDA Housing Ltd with IFSC code IDIB000N022 are also being provided for deposit of registration amount of Rs 2 lakhs,” the statement said.
The DDA said that it had not started the procedure for allotment to wait-listed applicants of its Housing Scheme 2019 and asked people to be beware of such ‘dubious calls by unauthorised persons’.
Concession for EWS housing
The DDA, on July 9, 2019, decided to reduce the cost of EWS flats in Narela, being offered under the new Online Housing Scheme 2019, by giving a concession of up to 40% to allottees, officials said. The scheme, which ended on June 10, 2019, was for the sale of nearly 18,000 newly-built flats in Delhi’s Vasant Kunj and Narela residential areas, for which the DDA had received about 50,000 applications.
The decision was made, taking into consideration the income criteria of allottees of EWS category, which is Rs 3 lakhs per annum, officials said. “It was considered appropriate to reduce the cost of EWS flats, by offering 40% concession in construction cost, for 6,536 EWS flats at Pocket 1A, 1B and 1C, Narela and similarly, 10% concession in construction cost for EWS flats at Pocket G7/G8, Sector V, Narela, to offer affordable housing to economically weaker section, as a one-time measure,” the statement said.
The modified rates would apply to allottees of the current scheme. In case of leftover flats, it would be re-advertised at reduced rates. This would help in providing these flats at concessional rates to the economically weaker sections, it said.

Update on April 28, 2022
DDA plans to sell 13,000 flats on ‘first come, first served’ basis
The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is likely to sell about 13,000 flats on ‘first come, first served’ basis after the authority could not sell these flats through the draw of lots conducted in April 2022. The draw of lots had witnessed less than one-third of takers. As per an official, the authority has sent a proposal to the ministry and once it is approved, the flats would be sold on a first come, first served basis through online platform.

DDA amends housing regulations to allow more participation in DDA housing schemes
The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has approved an amendment in its housing regulations to allow more public participation in the DDA housing schemes if individuals or their family members do not own a flat or a plot of area above 67 sq metres in the city. As per the Regulation 7 of DDA (Management and Disposal of Housing Estate) Regulations, 1968, only those persons would be eligible for allotment of DDA flats who or their family members do not own a flat or land in Delhi. This has been restricting the demand for DDA flats significantly. The amendment will be sent to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs for approval and notification of the proposed amendements.
As per an official statement, the number of waitlisted allottees will be equal to the number of flats offered under the housing scheme as against 25% as per the existing regulation. The unsold flats of developing areas may be offered on first come first serve basis and no condition in terms of ownership of flats shall apply to the applicants. An applicant can buy the unsold flats even though he or she may be having a flat or plot in Delhi. Also, public entities will also be eligible for allotment of such unsold flats.

According to senior DDA officials, these flats are situated in Narela, Jasola, Dwarka and Rohini.
